CAPE TOWN – NEW Southern Energy, one of South Africa’s leading solar energy companies, has scooped the international Company of the Year (Business Excellence) Award for Off-Grid Systems.
The renewable energy solutions provider has been lauded for its ability to work with multiple battery and battery inverter technologies.
It stands out for its expertise to work with extremely unstable voltages and has proven its expertise to ensure grid reliability in the systems they develop.
“We are thrilled to be part of a vibrant industry, as the solar revolution is helping to enable Africa to reach its full potential,” said David Masureik, Chief Executive Officer, New Southern Energy.
“We truly believe that solar energy can help build economies, and improve quality of life for people across the continent,” he added.
New Southern Energy first made headlines when they built South Africa’s first floating solar plant at the Marlenique Estate in the Western Cape.
The organization developed the rooftop solar plant at Golden Arrow Bus Services depot, which led to the transport provider becoming a net exporter of green energy, as well as the system at popular Nicolway Mali in Johannesburg.
The company has built solar plants across industries as diverse as agricultural, commercial and hospitality.
They recently switched on an entirely off-grid system at the remote Sossusvlei Lodge in the Namib desert, providing this lodge with energy self-sufficiency.
